When a traveling carnival comes to a small Irish town, a local cop makes it her mission to see that everything is done by the book! Her passion for permits, licenses and paperwork makes life very difficult for the carnival's owner. But there is more to this cop that meets the eye. Her odd-ball behavior and attachment to the carnival arouses suspicion among the carnival folk. "There's something weird about her."
This story builds steadily from a seemingly ordinary encounter to some lively carnival craziness. Fortune teller, Izzy, has fascinating insight about Stella the cop, and what makes her tick. I was drawn in by my growing curiosity, and the great ending had me laughing out loud.
A mysterious, elusive, and likable man, Bonzo is surrounded by a cast of characters just as interesting as himself. In between concerts, festivals and infamous house parties, he has a conflict with property developers who threaten to change his area for the worse.
I really enjoyed this story, especially the fascinating people in it. Guy is this cool, laid back dude with more than a bit of brains. Jenny is a sweet, kind friend and good company for Bonzo. Eddie Stack's portrayal of Kiki, Finbar and Kerri perfectly describes the kind of people who plonk down hideous housing estates on the outskirts of a picturesque Irish village - greedy, obnoxious property developers with no respect for the land or its people - "slime!"
The reader is carried along on a journey full of highs and lows, like a trip down the rapids. Such an intriguing and hilarious adventure, with a surprise ending that is deliciously satisfying!
One for the Rover
Barry Hannon's life is turned upside down and inside out when a woman he met on a retreat lands on his doorstep. Although she seems the perfect companion when she first arrives, Mariah - a crystal toting, guru worshiping "free spirit" - has more baggage than a jumbo jet!
"Rover" is a fine example of Eddie Stack's skill at bringing his characters to life. While in Ireland, I met Mariah ... or rather, someone so much like her that it shocked me. Quite content to live on the dole and leave her bills unpaid, she spends her days cooking and keeping house for Barry while trekking across the countryside "harnessing the energy of ley lines." In reality, this "energy facilitator" does little more than suck energy from others. "What kind of lulu was she?" Indeed!
I have thoroughly enjoyed Eddie Stack's short stories, but I also love this longer story format. It allows more time for deeper development of a greater number of characters. I earnestly recommend "Borderlines" for lively and enthralling reading, then check out his Amazon author's page because you'll be wanting some more!
